Macallan Harmony Collection Series
The second release in this innovative collection embarks on a sensorial journey through the wonderful world of coffee, drawing on the skill and expertise of five coffee experts. The Macallan Whisky Maker Steven Bremner created two whiskies with a distinct coffee note, creating a delightful coffee and whisky pairing experience.
Intense Arabica is the second release from The Macallan's limited annual series, The Harmony: a collection which draws its inspiration from the natural world. This special single malt exudes flavours of sweet oak, tiramisu and dark chocolate, and provides a delightful whisky and coffee pairing experience.
The Macallan's Whisky Maker Steven Bremner hosted a masterclass with world renowned coffee masters to form his creation, and settled on the Ethiopian Arabica bean. Ethiopia being the birthplace of coffee, its only fitting that this bean is used for The Macallan's first coffee-inspired whisky.
A SENSORY JOURNEY
This special single malt is inspired by the Ethiopian Arabica bean. Ethiopia is claimed to be the birthplace of coffee as the Arabica bean was the first species of coffee to be cultivated.
With a distinct coffee flavour, this whisky exudes notes of espresso, dark chocolate and sweet oak. The intensely flavoured single malt invites you to immerse yourself in a sensory journey through flavour and aroma.
The precious liquid is encased in a sustainable recycled box, made using coffee bean husks that would have otherwise been discarded. At 44% abv, the dram was aged in sherry seasoned casks to compliment the rich taste of coffee.
